we believe that heaven begins with life on earth
we believe in friends, family, community
we watch, we listen, we learn
we support, we encourage, we love
we believe God's greatest gift is a life-changing experience of Jesus
Our passion is to see this gift embraced by people around the world. With deep compassion and cultural sensitivity, Global Interaction exists to empower communities to develop their own distinctive ways of following Jesus
We are an Australian cross-cultural mission agency operating for almost 130 years. We were previously known as Australian Baptist Missionary Society.
Currently we send 120 long-term cross-cultural workers to establish and nurture growing, vibrant faith communities among nine least-reached people groups in Africa and Asia. Also each year we send over 200 people on short-term mission experiences (Global Xposure)
We have ongoing relationships to support the growth and development of active churches in Outback Australia, Bangladesh, Hong Kong, India, Lebanon, Vietnam, Papua, Papua New Guinea, Zambia and Zimbabwe
Our ministry is supported by national and state office teams in Australia and financially relies on donations.
